Thickeners/Polymers/RheologyModifiers

This category includes water, and oil, soluble Thickening Agents, Gelling Agents, and Rheology Modifiers

Thickening Agents are ingredients that may be added to increase the viscosity of an emulsion without any other significant change to performance of emulstion behavior. Some thickeners will help to stabilize your emulsions while some will de-stabilize. Almost none of these are waxes, though they are usually in solid form.

Gelling Agents are ingredients that will turn your water, or oil, phase into a gel, which is thickened but, without stiffness. Emulstions thickened with Geling Agents will be more mobile, and fluid, than rather than stiff. Some of these gels will thin when force is applied (thixotropic) and return to viscosity when the force is removed. These gels make it possible to create thick products, that can be shaken, or stirred under high shear, for easier bottling, or for spraying.

Rheology Modifiers are ingredients that alter the flow of a product. In doing so they also alter the feel, offering increased slip and silkiness, and behavior, because of the way that they move, smoothly, across the skin. They will usually improve the suspension capability of any gel while also creating a more fluid product, that flows easily. Most rheology modifiers will also improve absorption rates, and depth, while eliminating dryness.

Please read the information for each ingredient to determine how it will impact your emulsion.
